[2.6 patch] MIPS: remove smp_tune_scheduling()

To: ralf@linux-mips.org
Subject: [2.6 patch] MIPS: remove smp_tune_scheduling()
From: Adrian Bunk <bunk@stusta.de>
Date: Thu, 11 Jan 2007 14:50:37 +0100
Cc: linux-mips@linux-mips.org, linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org
Original-recipient: rfc822;linux-mips@linux-mips.org
Sender: linux-mips-bounce@linux-mips.org
User-agent: Mutt/1.5.13 (2006-08-11)
Since smp_tune_scheduling() didn't do anything we can simply remove it.
